Skip to comments.CHINA IS LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR COVID-19 DAMAGE AND CLAIMS COULD BE IN THE TRILLIONS
Posted on 03/25/2020 9:12:43 PM PDT by hapnHal
As the novel coronavirus incubated in Wuhan from mid-December to mid-January, the Chinese state made evidently intentional misrepresentations to its people concerning the outbreak, providing false assurances to the population preceding the approach of the Lunar New Year celebrations on Jan. 25.
In mid-December, an outbreak of a novel influenza-like illness was traced to workers and customers of the citys Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, which contained exotic and wild animal species. On Dec. 26, multiple Chinese news outlets released reports of an anonymous laboratory technician who made a startling discovery: The sickness was caused by a new coronavirus that was 87 percent similar to SARS, or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.Li Wenliang, an ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital, sounded the alarm in an online chatroom on Dec. 30.
That night, Wuhan public health authorities solicited information on the emergence of a pneumonia of unclear cause, but omitted Lis discussion about SARS or a novel coronavirus. Li and other medical professionals who tried to disclose the emergence of the virus were suppressed or jailed by the regime. On Jan. 1, the state-run Xinhua News Agency warned, The police call on all netizens to not fabricate rumors, not spread rumors, not believe rumors. Four days after Lis chatroom discussion, officers of the Public Security Bureau forced him to sign a letter acknowledging he had made false comments, and that his revelations had severely disturbed the social order.
Li, who has become something of an underground folk hero in China against chicanery by state officials, ultimately died of the disease. China silenced other doctors raising the alarm, minimizing the danger to the public even as they were bewildered and overwhelmed. State media suppressed information about the virus.
Although authorities closed the Wuhan wet market at the epicenter of the contagion, they did not take further steps to stop the wildlife trade.

Relief bailout SOLUTION for America
PRESIDENT TRUMP “SEND CHINA A BILL FOR COVID-19 REPARATIONS”
Like they’re really gonna pay.
Would recommend recovery of the amounts owing through two direct mechanisms, landing fees for Chinese aircraft, and a 10 to 20 per cent tariff on imported goods. They would have to come up with part of each levy to stay competitive, or in the case of the aircraft landing fee, wealthy Chinese would be paying on behalf of their commie government.
Taking them to court would take a long time and might never result in any payments within five or even ten years, if at all. So I would go for it more directly and immediately.
Dr. Li Wenliang
Dont forget his name. Hes like the guy who stood in front of the tank at Tianamen Square.
Yea, they'll get right on that.
and if Canada did not enact the same provisions, or even if they do, extend the entry fee to land borders to prevent circumvention by landing in Canada or flying in from Europe or other countries.
Made In America, folks
The price for China’s cheaply-made goods has proven very expensive
“Like theyre really gonna pay.”
No they won’t. So stop all trade with China and ban all travel from China.
That sounds like the kind of endless, aimless, budget-free legal hunt that Atty.Gen. Barr would love to be assigned to.
“Pick me! Pick me, Mr. President!!!”
Unfortunately, China holds the debt reigns.
Like they are going to pay?
China holds over $1 trillion in U.S. debt
Sock it to them. China also has a lot of holdings in America
So were waiting for Hillary to be held accountable, the Deep State to be taken down, the Durham indictments, flying rainbow unicorns and now the China Virus settlement.
You ask when ?
My astrologer says it all happens on the same day, when the rings of Saturn conjunct with Uranus.
The only bad news is theres a popcorn shortage til after your dead
Tell us more about Uranus, O ye of little faith.
Can we send thie blog guy over to collect?
I got one. An hour later I wanted another one!
Lets get basic folks. The Han Chicom roaches are what they are - xenophobic to the bone and total parasites. Their unprovoked Wuhan bioweapon attack establishes beyond any doubt that they are insane and hence very, very dangerous. By no means should they be allowed to continue to steal our technology. Any further assaults against us should trigger extremely disproportionate responses. They are amazingly vulnerable on a number of fronts. Food, fiber, and energy are obvious examples. Disengaging our ‘supply chain’ from their economy is another. And after they have paid us full recompense for the damages stemming from the Wuhan virus attack, they should be put on notice that should they attack us in any way or engage in any sort of preparations for warlike action, Three Gorges Dam will be destroyed, for openers.
Not pay? He he. All the Treasury bonds they have, just debit from that.
good luck collecting.
